About the Author

Eirik Saethre is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and author of Illness Is a Weapon: Indigenous Identity and Enduring Afflictions (also published by Vanderbilt University Press).


This fine-grained analysis of an extremely remote Aboriginal settlement in the Northern Territory, Australia, documents the difficulties of improving Indigenous health through educational programs that improve the knowledge of patients and healthcare providers without addressing the underlying conditions fostering ill-health, health disparities, and social inequality. Public health and medical professionals who work with Indigenous people anywhere in the world will learn valuable lessons from this book. - Jeffrey Collmann, Director, O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, Georgetown University.
